Incredibly friendly couple, helpful advice, bicycle rental, very clean kitchen and lovely dining/lounge area - great to cycle around Blenheim/Renwick wineries.

Watson's Way is one of those places that you selfishly almost don't want to share with everyone, in case you want to go back and you can't get a booking. The property owners are so friendly and helpful, and they maintain a gorgeous property, with fruit trees, a hammock, wrap-around deck on the main building, tennis courts, bocce ball, a great kitchen, and laundry facilities. We rented bikes to explore some of the many nearby vineyards, and pie and coffee shops. This place is a gem.

What a wonderful place. Go on the bike tour, buy a couple of bottles, buy food for the BBQ and enjoy! Super hosts!

Book ahead as limited space at this charming place. Ideal location for the vineyards of Marlborough. Brilliant garden (with hammocks), friendly hosts and $25 bike rental.
